Volunteer_page3bLooking for a way to help your company give back to the community? The Stamford Public Education Foundation can bring volunteer opportunities to you. As employees in fast-pace work environments find it challenging to leave their desk for more than an hour per session, SPEF finds a solution. Provide SPEF the space and sponsorship, and we’ll do the rest.

Next Generation conveniently brings volunteer opportunities on-site to local businesses. SPEF partners with elementary schools to run weekly sessions that include 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students who are selected due to their family’s economic standing and a lack of enrollment in other after-school activities. The program is designed to help students improve their grades, expand their horizons, and to allow corporate volunteers to have a positive impact on the future of Stamford’s next generation.

Work Study conveniently brings volunteer opportunities on-site to local businesses in the area. SPEF works collaboratively with local high schools to run ten consecutive workshops during the school year to help business and finance students develop an effective resume, hone their interview skills, receive financial literacy training, practice their presentation skills and develop an understanding of the corporate sector. SPEF provides volunteers with written instructions prior to each session to ensure that every interaction is professional, effective and productive for both the students and the volunteers. Time commitment is one hour per session. (Done-in-a-day and/or On-going)
